I don't have a fan shroud in my '65 Convert w/289. Am I supposed to have one? Advantages?

Even if your car did not originally come with a fan shroud, it will be much better off with one. It makes the fan more effective at pulling air through the radiator.

Which fan does it currently have, how many blades?

I believe early gen stangs only got factory shrouds with factory AC. Or ordered some cooling package?

Do you have an issue with overheating? If not, spend the money on something else.
